Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some charts can have several thousand ratings)

This chart is rated in the top 2% of all charts on BestEverAlbums.com. This chart has a Bayesian average rating of 89.8/100, a mean average of 95.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 95.0/100. The standard deviation for this chart is 5.0.

Absolutely awesome I'm always glad to see someone who isn't afraid of mainstream music. So many people here are absolutely terrified of it. Not me. Heh heh

Tam, this is classy stuff. You're one of the only people on this site who gives fair and proper recognition to soul/r 'n' b/funk acts, and to some of the great female voices. I'm guessing from the picks you might have lived through this year, for my money it was one of the very best - every genre produced classics - the radio was great, "Top Of The Pops" was great, live shows were cheap, and the album still meant something.
